Preparation is part of A Well Crafted Life and as we prepare for this new year, forgiveness is a part of that preparation.
We need to forgive ourselves before we can forgive others. Here are 3 things I am going to forgive myself for now in 2016, so I can be ready to craft my plan for 2017.
- I forgive myself for giving up on a very important goal to lose 50 lbs in 2016. I almost reached my goal, but then had a setback and gained half of the weight I lost. So I gave up on the goal totally.
- I forgive myself for placing warped expectations on people. I learned this in 2016. Many of my hurtful situations have been as a result of me placing wrong expectations on others and then being hurt when the expectation is not met. I was wrong to do this.
- I forgive myself for not fully using my God given gifts and talents because I felt I was unappreciated. Holding back what is natural for me to do to help someone, just because I do not sense appreciation is wrong.
What do you need to forgive yourself of today? Don’t carry the old into the new.
Be inspired today,
